Holidays in Genoa

Genoa may get overshadowed by Venice and Florence, but it’s still one of Northern Italy’s great art cities. Genoa holidays will introduce you to a place of sudden contrasts, where narrow alleys open suddenly onto huge sea views, and palaces are hidden away up secluded staircases.

In terms of sights, Genoa’s renaissance Laterna lighthouse is one of the oldest and highest in Europe, while its black and white striped cathedral of San Lorenzo is impressive even by Italy’s high standards. Genoa’s restaurants are also excellent, the city that gave the world pesto and ravioli typically serving dishes based around fresh green herbs rather than tomato. As the coastline beyond Genoa is one of Italy’s most beautiful, many visitors use the city as a base to explore further. The rocky coves and brightly painted villages of the Cinque Terre region in particular have been attracting visitors for centuries. Italy’s main port, Genoa also has regular ferry connections to the nearby holiday islands of Corsica and Sardinia.

Car hire in Genoa

British Airways car hire includes all of the mandatory charges that you'll need to drive away your car in Genoa.

  • Unlimited mileage
  • 24–hour customer support and roadside assistance
  • Collect Avios on every rental

Genoa car hire is an ideal way to discover more of Northern Italy. Just beyond Genoa, often via dramatic cliff-top roads, are the rugged Cinque Terre coast and the beaches of the Italian Riviera. Further down the coast is the exclusive beach town of Forte dei Marmi, where designer Giorgio Armani has a summer villa.

To the north of Genoa are the gastronomic centre of Alba, the wine region of Asti and elegant Turin, Northern Italy’s second city. Should you want to make your holiday international, the French Cote D’Azur and the city of Nice are just three hours drive down the coast to the West of Genoa. You’ll also get the chance to earn Avios with every rental.
